Had a dull ache in my left side since yesterday,not sure if it's trapped wind or something but anyway I've been to the walk in centre,they've referrered me to epau tomorrow morning,doctor said I had a trace of protein in my urine,is that serious? Worried sick. I'm 8+1 xx
Protein is usually indicative of an infection. It’s not really possible to say what’s up but it could be a number of things - a cyst, a urine infection etc. EPAU will likely dip your urine again and maybe culture it, they may do a scan to check the foetus is located within the womb, and to check your ovaries. Good luck, don’t panic, I had similar and it was an orange sized cyst on one ovary. It resolved itself by 12 w If at any point you develop severe one sided pain, or a high temp that’s a trip to emergency
I had this early on in my pregnancy too. Went for a scan and all was ok, just stretching pains and wind!
Protein in your urine isn't really something to worry about on its own at this stage. I often have some if my Urine is very concentrated. You can also get protein if your sample is contaminated with vaginal discharge which is easy done. I wouldn't worry about that at all.
All the best for your scan tomorrow. They will just want to rule out ectopic pregnancy.
